Sport, in the sense that it is the most visible and the most important element of human life, is an incredibly important topic in the lives of people all over the world.
And sports is one of the few arenas in which we can get a fair and balanced look at all aspects of life, and at the impact of these arenas on people.
It is a topic that will take a lot of thought and discussion.
That is why, for the first time in a long time, we are going to put forward the Olympic Games’ main sports programme, with the aim of promoting sport in a positive way, which is how it should be.
We will have four main sports programmes, which will be the main focus of our effort.
One will be a programme of global sport, to give an international perspective to the Olympic programme.
Another will be sports from the developing world, and we are talking about sport that will be accessible and accessible to people.
The third programme will focus on sports from a global perspective, so that we can give the athletes from the most disadvantaged countries an opportunity to represent their countries in the Olympic games.
The fourth programme will be on the sports that we believe to be most effective for promoting peace and prosperity in the world, the most inspiring sports, and also on the issues of health and human rights.
And the programme that we have put together will also provide a platform for sports organisations in developing countries to have the opportunity to show the world what is possible and what can be achieved when sport is taken seriously, and when sport contributes to human development.
Sport will be at the centre of our Olympic programme, but it will also be part of the global agenda that we will be bringing to the world at the Olympic Winter Games.
Sports are not only important in our country, but they are important for the whole world.
Sports represent a huge and powerful asset for our country.
It has been proven over and over again, that if sport is given the opportunity, it can transform our lives.
This is why we have created a sports programme that will give athletes from all around the world a chance to demonstrate their abilities and achievements, in a way that is as positive as it is inspiring.
We believe that sport is the future of the Olympic Movement, and that it can be the centrepiece of the 2020 Games, the world’s largest, most powerful sporting event.
And this programme will bring together all aspects, including sports, education, health and education.
It will be an outstanding opportunity for the athletes to showcase their talents, to showcase themselves and to showcase the Olympic values.
I hope that you can join me at the podium.
